Former Murray State golfer Patrick
Newcomb scored his first win on the PGA Tour Latinoamérica circuit
Sunday when he won the Honduras Open at the Indura Beach and Golf
Resort Club. Newcomb, who last played for the Racers in 2013,
survived a playoff after a final round 69 to get his second win as a
Newcomb's win was his first in 15
starts on PGA Tour Latinoamérica and he's happy to rake in the first
place prize $31,500.
The Benton, KY native had a final
score line of 68-73-61-69 for a 17-under-par total of 271.
Newcomb defeated fellow American Hank
Lebioda and Florida State alum in the playoff.
Newcomb's victory was fueled by a
career-low 11-under-par 61 Saturday in the third round. The third

first place and a two-shot lead. His round consisted of nine birdies
& an eagle at the 18th hole.
This is Newcomb's best finish this
spring in five starts on PGA Tour Latinoamérica and his rank of 80th
on the money list is sure to improve.

events played in fourteen countries across Latin America.
